There are some nice fundamental inequalities we have learned from high school to graduate level, such as average inequalities, Cauchy-Schwarz inequality, Holder inequality, Jensen inequality among others. We will introduce some interesting tricks on how to use some of those inequalities. Most of our fun examples come from some high school math contests.
